    It’s better - after break in. Gorgeous screen. Sound is fabulous. Lower noise floor. $3699 - amp, pre, dac, streamer, HDMI, etc. Nice build quality.

    Mike, how is the DAC in it? What is the overall tone? Does it sound good at lower volumes?

    Re: HiFi Rose RS520

    Agree.....One of my clients brought over a 520 to Demo on my reference QLS model (a ribbon based Line Source ) . I was pleasantly surprised how good it sounded driving the QLS.....VERY smooth, clean presentation, somewhat on the warm, relaxed side of the spectrum....One Youtube review, ( who really liked it), said it sounded neutral to slightly lean in his system. Didn't sound like that in mine. It's also very well made.

    Cheers....
